I see you did not provide any helpful advice only critisim when the fact is that inexperenced need guidence such as to watch size on the last, bid, and ask (last-size, bid-size, ask-size) to be sure price is actually moving with actual trading interest versus being manipulated with itsy bitsy dollar-amount trades, that traders should wait till 11:30 am EST before investing so as to let a winner pull back in price etc...

From the referenced article: "we can conclude that we find evidence that investor experience lessens the simple mathematical error of estimating portfolio returns, but seems not to influence their behavioral mistakes pertaining to how good (in absolute sense or relative to other investors) they are."

Read as:

Inexperienced investors tend not to have a good handle on their portfolio performance. More experienced investors have a better understanding of their portfolio performance, although both groups make mistakes in estimating the quality of their investing performance.
